Toilet time

Oh the problems of toilet time. All the struggle to use the equipment to transfer him into the bathroom. Stand him up and drop the trousers to have a shower of urine all over the floor dry trousers and even me. Get clean trousers on fresh pad etc. Right ready I say in my best voice yes says he. Ok then lets stand you up another shower of urine yes you've guessed it all over the clean trousers pad and this time the wall (ha ha missed me this time).

Funny at the time it makes me frustrated but writing it down I am chuckling away to myself. Please feel free to have a laugh but don't forget the tenna products. Janexx

  • Been there, done that, bought the t shirt many times. With my husband's ulcerative colitis I don't just get wet. I know.....too much information. Have you seen the posts on convenes. They are a God send, apart from a few mishaps, (mostly my fault), we rarely have wet trousers now. The UC still means lots of showers and clothes changes but not wet.

  • We did try them but Brian not able to use them. Poor old boris seems to be a bit shy these days and seems to retract a lot more now. Janexx

  • Oh yes, sorry, you did say before. When hubby was using pads, I tried lots of different ones. I found Lille healthcare, Supren form maxi were the best for him. They are shaped back and front and are worn with stretchy disposable elastic pants that can be washed. I was supplied with straight ones but they were hopeless. To me the reduction of wet trousers was worth the cost.

  • We have no problems when he has got pads on its the 30 seconds or so that he is uncovered it seems to start a chain reaction ie who and what can I tinkle on today. Janexx

  • I am glad you can laugh - when I am bending down washing my wife's posterior region she tends to "blow off"and more or less asphyxiate me! Its a killer . I would laugh if I could catch my breath !

  • Georgepa, what a laugh to start the morning.. Stephen had a right chortle, so thanks for that - cheered us both up xx

  • HI GEORGEPA hows it going ok I hope heres another song just got back from the windy city I think it was from anne get your gun but stand corrected as always I think it was sung by DORIS DAY but again I stand corrected any help wou;d be appreciated but not with your wifes blowing off mate it seems like she can manage on her own peter jones queensland Australia psp sufferer

  • Hi Peter spot on with the song and yes it was Doris Day and you are quite right my wife needs neither help nor encouragement !

  • And totally with you on this one too. We had three complete sets of clothes wet yesterday. And no sunshine to dry the washing. And he fell in the shower and pushed the glass screen out of alignment yet again. Fortunately I managed to push it back almost in place and it will stay like that till the next disaster.

  • you couldn't make it up could you .

    Nanna they are the pads I buy . I also use a Conti patient cleaning wipe to line the bottom part , Much like using a nappy liner . It catches and little messes . And softer for bottom .

    just another one of my little tips . at least it works for us is Vaseline which after blowing and cleans Johns nostrils he can't manage it himself I smear a little Vaseline inside . this keeps it softer and doesn't dry inside , easier to clean .

    I discovered it after trying it for myself when I kept on getting very dry crusty nose which would also bleed . hey presto I use it morning and night for both of us now

  • someone asked me if I had been girl guide , No I wasnt

  • Forget going to the toilet. Just stand patient up, drop trousers and have him pee into a llarge, narrow jug. Then pull up trousers, sit patient down , flush contents of jug down loo and rinse out ready for next time. If this takes place in a downstairs room, you might want draw the curtains first. This only works for peeing of course.

  • That would be fine if he was able to stand without equipment and knew when he wanted to go. He is in pads because he has no control and very little sensation. I put him on the toilet to change his pad and encourage him to have his bowels open. Janexx
